So I guess I'm one of many proud female NRA members ..........

So for a year I've been an NRA member joined a year ago. Well being of the younger generation I don't care much for snail mail and today I recieved my renewal notice, the first mailer actually payed attention to, and it's addressed "Ms Erik ******" apparently I'm a transgendered gun activist not like its problem in tolerant western Washington.....

Guess I'll need to call the NRA tommorow when the offices open tommorow and inform them that theyre going to have to fix that,,,,,

Wait a sec., just hold on a moment, just a second...:)
Now, you've just been handed a golden Opp-orr-too-nitty with a capital "O".

Don't anti-Rights groups always try to charge us gun owners with being angry, inbred, old, fat, white men? And don't they tend to just go bonkers when someone not fitting ANY of that description shows up? Just look at what happened when Mr. Colion Noir became an NRA News commentator: the only part he fits is the "man", seeing as he's a calm, young black Texan who recently became a lawyer.

You should have seen how people at the MDA event I counter protested at reacted when they saw I was Hspanic AND when they found out I was not a member of the NRA (following their exclamation of "you're just in the pocket of the NRA"). Got them to shut up for a solid ten seconds.:lol:

All I'm saying is that maybe keeping the title of "Ms." could help our cause and all.:D

I could realistically say I'm more liberal then the mainstream of the NRA on many things..... but I'm not a woman or transgendered, so at best it would be dishonest......

I was joking about keeping it. I thought I'd made it clear with the over-the-top first line of my reply.:)

In my case, I am Hispanic, and I'm not an NRA member, so the antis really get thrown off by that. They seem to shut down when their fallacious arguments are contradicted so blatantly in my very existence.
I could almost be termed a "black swan" to their blanket argument.:D

As to the political labels, I would fit closer to the etymological definition of "liberal" or the modern definition of "Libertarian", but I've registered independent.

oh I know you were joking.....

it doesn't matter what race, political persuation, sexual identity, etc, if you believe something other then what the extreme liberals believe then they will never consider you more then a token, well maybe they'll say you're a traitor in more extreme cases, so it's no use appealing to people who are convinced they're fighting the old rich white people because you're either an OFWG or you're a token or useful idiot for them as far as they're concerned....

You're clearly not liberal enough, otherwise that last part wouldn't bother you...well, I suppose the same could be said of the other wing as well. :-x
